Synopsis >

Far from the boisterous buzz of musical melting pots like New York and Los Angeles, there s a sound coming from a small fishing village in the English region of Cornwall, and it s one that demands attention. It s that of Auction for the Promise Club s Zoe White-Chambers a voice that s smooth without losing its edge, that beckons you without promising security. And that voice is on full display in the band s new video for Walk The Line. White-Chambers, alongside bandmates Perran Tremewan and Toby White-Chambers, make up the indie-rock trio the de facto voice of St. Agnes, which they call a picturesque village at the southernmost point of the U.K. We live by the sea and the countryside, so I guess that comes across in the music sometimes, Toby White-Chambers told Hive. The mellow subtle landscapes and weather can turn into rugged turmoil within hours. That turmoil is fully evident Walk The Line, starring Zoe herself. It s a poignant track about inner wars and second-guessing whose stirring guitar matches the subdued uproar of the lyrics ones that question what s beneath the lies and advise us not to keep everyone at arm s length. The clip, in essence, is a four-minute narrative depicting Zoe at war with herself: Trying to break through to a silent and stone-faced Zoe in the first scene, interrogating her in an SVU -like chamber in the next. It s all meant to capture what Toby White-Chambers calls those inner discussions people have inner turmoil maybe that they go over in their head, he told us the ones that can grow so loud that they end in a full-on emotional breakdown.
